I was cooking and let my pan get to hot before adding the oil. Next thing I know whoosh and the pan is flaming. Luckily I didn't panic (for the most part) got the flames out and put the pan outside. Unfortunately the damage was done my house smelled gross and there was no saving the pan.
I will surely miss her since she was the only frying pan I had :(

Anyway so after the excitement my 3 yo DD tells me she is telling her teacher the pan was on fire. And again this morning first thing she says to me is she is telling her teacher the pan caught on fire. Now I probably should have warned the teachers because sometimes DD likes to embellish stories a little. But I was preoccupied with stuff when the bus came so I handed her over and left. As I am walking back I hear DD say something and then both the driver and attendant say in panicked voices "what was on fire? " they didn't chase me down or call a fire department so DD must have alleviated whatever panic she had set onto motion.
Can't wait till DD gets home so I can hear how bad the damage to our house was lol

Lol! Yes they are. My grandson had a little scratch on his finger the weekend from playing on the swingset, my goodness I thought the whole finger had come off the way he yelled.

Yeah. And I'm glad it didn't freak her out but I think maybe me and DD need to go over fire safety again lol.

so scary - when DH and I first moved into our apt together (the first time I had lived away from home) - it was the first week in our new apt and DH started a fire cooking chicken cutlets.

I did that once (caught a pan on fire) ds told his teacher I butnt the house down and we were homeless O.o

She called my cell crazy concerned and I was like "nope not the house just the chicken" and she was like "are you sure you dont have to be ashamed" I was like yeah im pretty sure my house is intact and a safe structure... Stop by if you want...
